Prom nights in a ballroom fit for royalty

A traditional borrowed from the USA which is only growing bigger with each year that passes, the end-of-school Prom is a big date in the calendar of millions of young people up and down the country, and the occasion certainly demands a venue worthy of hosting it.

The Ballroom in Doncaster’s illustrious Empress Building is one such venue.

A vast space, complete with high ceilings and many of the original 1920s fixtures and fittings, as well as a large stage overlooking the amazing sprung dancefloor, the Empress Ballroom promises a fabulous location capable of holding up to 350 revellers who are spending the last night they will ever all spend in a room together.

We have a bar stocked with non-alcoholic drinks, plus a full catering service offering a range of hot and cold food, either in buffet form or a full sit-down service.

With our PA system and microphone, plus projector and big screen facilities, you can enlist the help of your film and media students to put together a video montage of precious memories you have captured on film, as well as deliver your end-of-year awards if you're having them.

We have a vast network of entertainers in our phone book, so the team at the Empress will be more than happy to arrange appropriate entertainment, such as a DJ or live band. Alternatively, if any of your students are skilled, then why not get them to showcase their talents for their schoolmates?

All of our Prom and Leavers Party packages can be tailored to your school’s budget, with a choice of food and drinks, personalised school or even sponsor banners, and we have partnerships with professional photographers who can set up a space for capturing guests as they arrive and they will have the opportunity to purchase digital or hard copies at reasonable rates.

So, if you’re looking for a venue that will provide exactly what you want for your prom or leavers ball, then the team here at the Empress Ballroom can make sure that your leavers ball will be a night you will never forget.
